Care of the Elders

MCH Elders’ care:

Elders’ Care Homes are located in a quiet, leafy and peaceful area of the hospital. It is over-looking beautiful paddy fields filled with butterflies and birds. It is a nature friendly environment where elders can find Peace and Joy.

We admit elderly and infirm persons for either

  • Residential Care
  • Nursing Care

The facilities for the care of the residents includes high quality food, a personal carer, en-suite bath and toilet, with hot water and electricity 24 hours a day. Our intention is to provide tender loving care to every individual with respect and dignity, so that they will enjoy every moment of their life during their stay.

It’s been well over a decade since our Elders’ care home took up the responsibility of providing care and attention to members of the local community who have no family or friends who would provide this for them. We are increasing our capacity to do so, thanks to generous and caring donors who are financing a new building currently.
